CCD PreK-8th Grade Faith Formation

CCD Resumes , March 26

The Mission of CCD

Our mission is to assist parents in forming their children into disciples who know and love Jesus Christ and are active members of their Parish family.  We are here to support parents in walking closely with their children as they grow in knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith. We assist parents in forming a new generation of young Catholics who know and love Jesus Christ and live the Catholic faith as His disciples in the community of the Catholic Church.

We strive to instill in our CCD families a deeper union with Christ through encouraging regular attendance at Mass and reception of the Sacraments.

Commitment of Parent and Child

Parents and families are involved in the learning process, empowered to be their child’s primary educator through life: in the Catholic  faith, in school, and in the world.  The family is the child’s first community of grace and prayer, and each child’s first school of Christian values,  virtues, including charity.

“Teach a child to choose the right path and when he is older
he will remain upon it.” ~ Proverbs 22:6
